The 215 Bruce Woodbury Beltway continues to gain national and local recognition as an example of innovative, proactive measures employed by Clark County to address the demands of explosive urban growth with the construction of a freeway facility funded primarily with local tax revenues. A 53-mile stretch of roadway, the Beltway circles three-quarters of the Las Vegas Valley to provide transportation mobility to one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas of the United States. The flexibility of this project makes it unique in that originally, the beltway was to be built as a full freeway, incrementally, with an ultimate completion date of 2025. Due to the valley's population surge, an accelerated approach was adopted and the initial configuration of the Beltway, as the Clark County 215 limited access expressway, was completed in 2003. The initial facility is comprised of frontage roads, partial freeway configurations, and an expandable four-lane highway. The full-freeway design consists of a divided highway with grade-separated interchanges and cross streets. Signalized intersections will occur only at interchanges. The number of lanes built will depend upon current and future anticipated traffic volumes in each of the segments; however, a minimum of four lanes - two lanes in each direction was constructed with the initial configuration. As funding is available, Clark County Public Works continues the segment-by-segment build-out of the Bruce Woodbury Beltway to a full-freeway facility.
